Worle picked up all three points at home to Yatton & Cleeve to record a comfortable victory.
Yatton & Cleeve 1
Worle returned to the Recreation Ground after two away games and came away with all three points.
This was a game of two halves with Yatton & Cleeve looking good on the break and took the lead in the 10th minute, before Worle equalised when Ryan Down was upended in the box and Ryan Hodrien made no mistake from the spot.
The second half was a different game with the home side well on top with Parker, McManus and Connor Down running the midfield with crisp one-touch play, the away defence could not contain the front three of Worle.
It was no surprise when Worle took the lead when Down fired Worle ahead, followed by a Ryan Hodrien goal to put clear daylight in this game. The goal of the game came when McManus ran at his back-peddling defender squaring the ball to Ryan Down for his brace.
Lewis Cahill was introduced and he showed his coolness in putting the game out of sight and Worle going up to second spot just behind another Weston club, Uphill Castle with a game in hand.
Credit goes to the Worle team who had to show both sides of their qualities with defending when under pressure and exceptional going forward. The man of the match award goes to Ryan Down.
This Saturday, Worle are at home again in the Somerset County Cup when they take on Bristol side Parson Street Old Boys (2.30pm).
Uphill Castle 3
Somerton Town 1
Anthony Askins’ Uphill Castle side recorded a fine result as they took the unbeaten record of Division 1 West leaders Somerton Town and moved to the top of the table themselves as a consequence.
Jack Askins (2) and Samuel Beresford did the damage in a highly entertaining game. The man of the match award, kindly sponsored by Sytner Mercedes-Benz of Weston, went to Joshua Evans.
This Saturday, Uphill Castle face a tough challenge when they travel to undefeated Premier Division high fliers Nailsea and Tickenham (2.30pm) in the second round of the Somerset Senior Cup.
